The Department of Accounting launched the annual Accounting Achievement Awards to engage with alumni, friends, and professionals in the Greater Philadelphia region, as well as support the next generation of accounting professionals.

All alumni, corporate partners, and friends of the Fox School are encouraged to share in this singal event by nominating graduates who exemplify our tradition of excellence. Please join us at our celebratory event to support tomorrow’s accounting leaders,” said Eric Press, PhD, chairman of the Department of Accounting.
